In honor of John Flynn, Marine Corps - Served in World War II
Hometown: Chicago
(Submitted November 4, 2008 by Larke Flynn-Lippert)

I wish to honor my Father, John Francis Joseph Flynn, and his service during World War II as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps. He was wounded on Guam and awarded a Purple Heart. As did so many, he suffered in some ways for the rest of his life as a consequence of the War. But he never complained and remained convinced that he had done the right thing in securing peace and security for others, at home and abroad.
